Ever wanted to play From Software’s masterpiece that is Dark Souls in the form of a board game? Well, you’re in luck, since Steamforged Games Ltd launched a Kickstarter campaign around a month ago, and it is now approaching £3.5 Million with just 6 more hours to go.

The board game is “a strategically challenging, deeply immersive combat exploration game for 1-4 players set in the Dark Souls universe. Players choose from a number of core character classes and explore dangerous locations full of monsters, treasures, and deadly boss fights.”

When it first launched, the funding surpassed $70,000 in just three minutes, which unlocked the first stretch goal. It was supposed to only include characters from the first and second Dark Souls’ games, which wasn’t much. Now the core game features the following items:

  • 3 Boss Models
  • 5 Mini-Boss Models
  • 4 Player Character Models
  • 4 Large Grunt Models
  • 12 Grunt Models
  • 7 Double Sided Game Tiles
  • 2 Double Sided Mini-Boss/Boss Tiles
  • 4 Player Character Boards
  • 3 Boss Dials for Tracking Damage
  • 60 Equipment Cards
  • 40 Treasure Cards
  • 26 Boss AI Cards
  • 36 Encounter Cards
  • 15 Coloured Dice
  • 100+ Game Tokens
